First of all Love offerUp! I just got back from buying 3 computer Hard Drive that the seller said it was in good working condition. Sata and 7200 RPM, 1T bye of data. Well not only was this false and misleading, there was only 1 drive that had 1T of data.. the other was smaller.
Although by itself I can over look the false or misleading post, all 3 drive was defective or dead. Being a computer tech for over 30+ hard drive is no big deal. Not only windows fail to reconized this these drive, after using professional hard drive recovery tools and software does not help. These drive are garbage and is defective. They seller passed on known bad goods to someone else.
There no recourse to prevent these bad seller from doing the same to other people! Although I been very careful always, there nothing you can do in some instances. There people who are outright attacked and mugged because of advert in Offerup. We need to have a way for user to report these people. You can even give them a bad rating as the seller do not have to rate you therefor you can not rate them or give them bad mark back. In essance people can continue to keep scaming and stealing, lying and pushing bad stuffs to others. This got to stop and OfferUp need to protect the community of user as a whole from these shady people. There need to be a way to report this activity and have these account ban or have transaction.
OfferUP please work on This! If not, offerUp will be known as another way for scammer to work out of and people will not trust this app anymore
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you guys for your support! I know its bawyer beware but sometimes you hot on a deal you want to snag it before someone else. It its really true for the saying if its too good to be true its usally is. I really love offerup and meeting new people doing do, but sometimes these Scam do happen, we need a way to report this to the community of such so that others won't fall for the same person over and over again.
Scam left uncheck will ruined offerup and make good people like us want to not use it all together...
Also how do you report? I don't see any way to report people bad dealing. I have completed over 30 transaction and for the most part been happy with the trade. However, you bound to run into shaddy people as I have that sell dangerious items such as unsafe tires or purposely sell something that is defective and they know it. Its the take the money now and run sort of people...
